11:05 pm

11:16 pm
what we want to be sure of is in the morning you don't have slick spots. i suspect we won't have widespread problems, might be a couple two hour delays, but this will change over to a bit of rain and only about 1/4- inch, so not even a rainy day with several dry hours. the big finale could be a band of snow showers or small accumulation across northeastern maryland tomorrow night. we start out with a look at what is going on in the atmosphere. of course, it's going to be all about the two pieces of this storm, the one from the south and the one coming across the ohio valley and great lakes becoming one big monster storm, getting together too late to bring us any snow. it's going to certainly clobber eastern new england with 1, 2, maybe 3 feet of snow snowing at 2 to 4 inches per hour. they've been battening down the hatches. it will really hit them tomorrow night and saturday, but it will start earlier.
11:17 pm
blizzard conditions are a big part of this story across the northeast, very strong wind, probably power outages and there will be snow across new york, pennsylvania and maybe northeastern maryland while we'll get rain and i think it will be fairly light and most of it south and east of d.c. or east of 95. we could see a little snow toward the end. just thought i'd show you some of these totals again where we see the blizzard conditions. new york is just on the en, but i think new york could -- edge, but i think new york could get 6 to 12 and bridgeport 12 to 18. north of hartford west of providence 18 to 24, boston in there and man chest. albany is close -- manchester. albany is close, but closer to new york it's the 3 to 6-inch amounts. into player it could drop an inch or 2 -- maryland it drop an inch or 2. in the highlands perhaps you'll get 1 to 2 inches of snow in the mountains
11:18 pm
after 7:00 or 6:00 tomorrow night. everything is sneaking up from the south. you can see it's beginning to change over to snow and sleet in the charlottesville area and i expect along interstate 81 you have a better chance of getting maybe enough of a coating to 1/2-inch or maybe an inch to cause slick spots in the morning. it will change over to rain even there. as the system comes north, you can see what weir talking about with roanoke along interstate -- we're talking about with roanoke along interstate 81 changing over. it's still 47 here. even if we get sleet, it should melt off pavement locally, 38 quantico. then you get colder spots like frederick and hagerstown, watch here temperatures in the morning. overnight most places stay at least above freezing from d.c. on south. we'll watch hagerstown, martinsburg, winchester, culpeper, maybe a couple spots there could have issues with a slick spot here and there.
11:19 pm
overnight 34 degrees, precipitation arriving through early morning and any mixing we have changes over to rain by midmorning. i think this rain will be fairly light, could end as light snow as with. our temperature gets up to 44 degrees tomorrow. so compared to new england we're getting off easy. saturday is blustery. you'll be kind of complaining about that windy think, 41 degrees. sunday is nice at 50 degrees. -- wind i think, 41 degrees. sunday is nice at 50 degrees, a couple rain showers, tuesday 50 degrees and valentine's day 45 degrees with showers. there's value in a fast start, but there's also a saying in sports it's not how you start but how you finish. that takes care of the 1st and 3rd period, but what about the 2nd? the caps have been particularly vexed in the middle period outscored 14-6 this year. they gave up three in the 2nd period to the penguins four
